The Details of the When and If

Today was my second day photographing the When and If. I don't think I could have asked for a more picturesque autumn day; blue skies, light wispy clouds, bright sunshine, blue water, light breeze... and that lovely snap thanks to a late morning frost. The frost was still melting off places as I climbed on board the When and If this morning. A few minutes in the bright sunshine and everything began to thaw.

Trying to capture the intimate details of this amazing boat is like a kid in a candy store choosing just one piece of candy to purchase. It is overwhelming. I find myself dumbstruck by the complexity of the joinery and the means by which forms grow and twist. Tonight I am looking over hundreds of images I took today. The details are completely exhausting. Knowing that so much of this will be pulled apart, rebuilt, reshaped and restored to its original condition is so hard to imagine.
